Coherent and efficient microwave-to-optical conversion using Rydberg atoms


Centre for Quantum Technologies, Singapore

Thibault Vogt obtained his PhD degree in 2006 at Laboratoire Aimé Cotton, University Paris-Sud 11, where, under the supervision of Pierre Pillet, he had achieved the demonstration of the resonant dipole blockade. He then worked as a postdoctor, first at the University of Virginia, and later on at Peking University in China. Since 2012, he has been appointed as a Senior Research Fellow in the Rydberg atom group of Assistant Prof, Wenhui Li, at Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore. His main research interests lie in Rydberg atom physics, ultracold atoms, and non-linear optics.


Frequency interconversion between microwave and optical fields will be important in future quantum information networks for connecting superconducting qubits and optical photons. However, this conversion is a real challenge as... [ view full abstract ]
